Hi there, I just purchased a new router to connect to my wifi notebook. I have never done anything like this before and pretty much self taught with anything to do with computers. Anyway my problem lies in not being able to get wireless internet. I have set up the router and established a connection between the router and laptop. Once connected at says that my status is excellent, however when i try to open internet explorer its says i have no internet connection. I also tried to sign into msn messenger which was obviously also unsuccessful. Though msn messenger allows you to troubleshoot so when i did this it tells me my default gateway appears offline.. Not really sure what that means. I read up a little about it and tried to enter the default gateway manually to what i believe it should be but to no avail. Please help! What am i doing wrong? Many thanks. Charlie.
